GAATE Foundation Teacher Hall of Fame

We have all known many great teachers and administrators who understand the importance of agriculture and how it affects our daily lives. These men and women realize the survival of this vital industry depends on educating and encouraging the next generation of decision-makers and have gone that “extra mile” to incorporate agriculture into their classroom lessons.

Oak Tree Education

The Santa Barbara County Farm Bureau’s Oak Tree Education Program is designed around educating county residents of all ages about the importance of the oak population in our area. To do this, we visit local high schools and grade schools to talk about the oaks and plant seedlings with the students. This program is in partnership with the Santa Barbara County Agriculture Commissioner’s Office and their Oak Tree Protection and Regeneration Program.

Young Farmers & Ranchers


Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers are active agriculturists like you … between the ages of 18 and 35 and involved in production, banking, business, and many other areas of the industry. Young Farmers and Ranchers develop leadership skills while volunteering time as active, vital members of the county Farm Bureaus. 

We, as the Farm Bureau, strive in educating and growing our community and to do so, we must start with the next generation. 

Blue Jacket Bonanza

This innovative program helps promote agricultural career exploration, empowers young people to be accountable, encourages and stimulates interest in the agricultural industry, and makes a positive difference in the lives of deserving students who may not be able to afford an FFA Blue Jacket.
